I wipe there, too. Figure I'm "in-the-area" and everything could always use a pat-down to make sure no moisture is there. I believe the little blood smears are because your anus is relaxed after you've 'gone' and will allow some rectum-residue on the TP, but not leak during normal activity between bathroom visits.
I have the ability of single-minded determination and accurate project focu....Hey, look, a cat!
Crohn's and UC are pretty darn crappy, but if you can't laugh at yourself, you'll cry......I'd much rather laugh.
2001 Dx'd with UC. No remission. No improvement with Remicade. 5/2008 surgery, removal of 6" of left side colon. Dx changed to Crohn's. Remission for 8-9wks after surgery, symptoms returned after resuming 6MP. Changed maintenance med to Methotrexate (MTX) and had great results with IM injections. Nausea and symptoms returning with oral MTX. Switched back to IM injections and am slowly improving.
